Anybody know the name of this flower?  Clue: It can be found in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

It's a Castillaja (Indian Paintbrush) it generally grows with grasses, it can't survive on it's own.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

That was my first thought but the ones we have down here don’t look quite like that. One of my favorite spring flowers. Usually last longer than the blue bonnets.
Are we having fun yet?

I never thought to look for a plant identifying app.  I downloaded the What's This Flower? on my tablet.  What a cool app.  Thanks, Evil!

No problem.

you can find all sorts of sensors and monitoring software for plants/gardens that can link to phones and other networks.

Does anybody know the name of these white flowers?

There might be a clue on the back of the postcard.  The state of North Carolina.  Perhaps the flower is indigenous to that state?

my first instinct is dogwood, but it looks a bit low...
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.

            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I looked up a dogwood flower and it sure looks like the postcard pic to me.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornus  Congratulations, PolkaDot, another one bites the dust.

On phone but looks more like Dogwood tree/bush, I think tree but understory blooms? Btw hornets seemingly "gone" from area BUT my Jack O' Latern, actually even when pumpkin, on porch attracted some? Color? Scent? I sprayed and carved. Tuen I got gnats quick (before cold-front, which really was storms.) Had to put candles in all day before Halloween to keep gnats or fruit flies at bay! This AM had to seal up in bag and throw away.

Yes, pretty sure it's a Dogwood tree.  I did refer to them as being flowers, but as it turns out they are flowers on a tree.  Enjoyed reading about the short, unhappy life of Mr. a's Jack O' Lantern.  Hornets like to gorge on sugars from rotting fruits and vegetables.  I bet that they were attracted to your pumpkin's aroma.  (I almost wrote that they probably smell better than humans, but I caught myself.)

I came across this colorful produce crate label while looking up produce crate labels.

Weird thing. It seems every year this mushroom pops up in the same place in the yard. I think there is an old tree stump there? Not sure what kind it is but seems weird it pops, even through whatever mulch I have put down, at roughly the same time each year, lives a little bit, then gone for months until next year.

I found some interesting fungi up at my place.  Here is one I need to see if it is Lion’s Mane.
Are we having fun yet?

Somewhere I got a book, never used, but I can't find it. That is a cool looking one. I guess all the wet weather and now, slightly, cooler weather is bringing out fungi a lot.
